7:36 am
comments unfortunate. her main cain was asked to -- herman cain was asked to comment on cnn this weekened. he said i am not running for theologian and chief. michelle bachmann said the controversy is inconsequential. more states are moving to earlier dates for presidential caucuses so why the rush? and will it effect who wins the nomination. joining us now, political editor at human events good morning good to see you. >> good to be here alison thank you for having me. >> first i want to comment on the mormon issue being brought up again and herman cain's decision to say you know i am not running for theologian and chief it is clever and also michelle bachmann opting out how big of a deal is this for mitt romney. >> less the deal in 08.
7:37 am
we heard a lot about governor romney's religion at the time to the point that he made an address in houston, along the lines that john kennedy did, to the pastors in texas, in 1960. and the fact is, it is the economy is an issue right now and that trance sends any issue about religion, 1928 the first catholic was elected for president. when he was a candidate in 1932 it was never brought up again since then, the issue of a catholic being president is no longer an issue, a jew and an african american have been on national tickets now, and i think as we move on in society, these issues become less important particularly when the economy is, shall we say, in a modest condition. that is putting it nicely i would say. let's talk about the primaries and caucus.
7:38 am
why the rush? what is the meaning behind this and how does it effect the candidates? >> after so many years as a political reporter alison i find when i expect things to be different they turn out just the same so many states want a piece of the action national attention, and the resulting tourism that comes with being a major primary state so even though the national party has sanctions against them like costing them delegates to the national convention they are willing to suffer that, in order to go early, and get on television, and get in the news. i remember four years ago when my wife was helping me pack to leave for iowa, on january 2nd, and i thought it would take a little bit longer but it won't. it is going to be early again and new hampshire by law has to be the first primary in the nation when someone moves back so does new hampshire automatically. effect on those running do they have to solidify their plans?
7:39 am
what has to happen for them to get ready for these big races. >> they get a lot more frequent flyer miles they are jetting from iowa to new hampshire, florida and arizona, which are now in january, and i think it also takes away from the kind of attention that you can get going one on one with voters in different states people in new hampshire like to look at the candidate and touch him or her and get some answers, well, if you are trying to get a plane to get to arizona and florida, that becomes more difficult. i think it takes away from the process. a lot of talk these days about herman cain and his tax sort of his tax plan the 999 tax situation. he was in town signing his bob, herman cain -- book. herman cain my journey to the white house. he is the first presidential hopeful to write a book envisioning himself as
7:40 am
president since hughie long wrote my first days in the white house back in 1935. i am told herman cain spells out what he would like to do as president i find it interesting herman cain is someone who has never held office before, he ran for the united states senate in georgia nearly 10 years ago, that is when i interviewed him the first time and americans historically like candidates who held some kind of office. george h w bush and abraham lincoln only served two temples in house of rep re-- terms in house of representatives at least they were there. this will work against mr. cain. on the other hand a lot of things that traditionally happened are changed. people are finding appeal in a hard charging business man and navy veteran. thanks for visiting us today. >> thanks for having me alison, happy columbus day and happy
7:41 am
birthday to my mom too. >> happy birthday. >> okay steve. a lot to honor today. 7:40 a.m. on monday morning up next we will continue with fox 5 morning news as we check headlines on the other side of the break including more from michael jackson's memorial concert. and then paul mccartney says i do again. stay with us drinkin'? what are you i'm drinkin' dunkin'. coffee -- black, straight up. extra cream, three sugars. iced coffee french vanilla. for me. iced coffee with a turbo shot. i'm drinkin' dunkin'. i'm drinkin' dunkin'. i'm drinkin' dunkin'. drinkin' dunkin'. america runs on dunkin' coffee.

8:17 am
parkway, 32, car stuck in the center of the roadway has been moved over to the shoulder. i have state highway out here. two lanes northbound side of the highway, causing rubber necking delays. outer loop of the belt way, south, we have an accident along the right side of the highway that will slow down your commute as you travel along 270, inner loop traffic behaving nicely no incidents along new york avenue lanes open, coming inbound. that is a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. >> all right thank you the catch phrase for community development in recent years has been smart growth but our next guest says smart may not be the best word to use when talking about montgomery county, good to see you bob. >> good to see you. >> happy holidays. >> same to you. >> montgomery county, this doesn't usually get a lot of
8:18 am
attention when we talk about zoning but it could set the stage for years to come. >> the council will vote tomorrow, tuesday on a major overhaul of the zoning rules commercial zoning rules for business districts in the county. and you know they are trying to try to focus the growth in areas, in spots where there are metro stations or other mass transit for instance where the purple line is going to go the light rail line assuming it ever gets built and i think it does do that to a large extent critics say this is dumb smart growth they are giving away too much to developers that is the big criticism of it, they are not making the developers pay enough for affordable housing, they are not making the developers pay enough to provide for instance, money or space for other public facilities, likely bares, or rec centers things like that. i looked into it, this was
8:19 am
originally brought to my attention by the kittings, when i went into -- critics, when i went into it thinking this is not a good idea, the more i looked into it, i decided it was supportive overall. it could be better i mean i do thing they could have more money especially for affordable housing but overall this is a step in the right direction for the county. a lot of times when you have development projects the developer might cut in a deal for exchange for the land. >> right. >> a lot of this is repurposing existing land or property. >> that is what is crucial here our region is going to grow a lot in the next decades, their forecast certainly of hundreds of thousands of more people moving to our region or even millions if you are talking 20, 30 years, my question is where are we going to put those people in new housing
8:20 am
developments that will spring up in the outer suburbs? you could do that but that is just more sprawl and more traffic, bad for the environment and not the smart way to go in order to sort of pack those people into existing built up neighbourhoods, like montgomery county, which is almost entirely built up except for the ag preserve which of course is being protected, you have to change existing communities, so the whole idea here is to take places that are now exclusively business districts and especially strip malls and basically convert them to places that have a mix of retail and residences. apartment buildings. >> literally building up not out. >> basically you have retail on the first floor and apartments up top and more of an urban environment and this makes a lot of neighbourhood activists uncomfortable they are very comfortable and happy with single family homes communities
8:21 am
of single family homes they are worried about creeping urbanization, congestion, changing the nature of their neighbourhood i understand that but for the region as a whole and montgomery county as a whole it makes more sense to pack more people in a good positive sort of way with lots of mass transit and walkable communities. >> real quick from a political stand point, the county council has the ball and is running with it here can county executive do anything about it? no, mike leggett who is normally soft spoken he was very critical of this plan but he doesn't have a say in this the county council controls land use and i think the vote will be pretty big in favour of this, despite some concerns. >> all right we will keep an eye on it bob appreciate you keeping us up to speed. 8:21 a.m. on this monday morning alison. >> all right up next, hands up

8:53 am
lot of it is just getting your dog to a point where they are desensitized everything is new to them and from any experience dealing with other people to dealing with other dogs and it is key to find those experiences where they can get that exposure, so if you are trying to socialize your dog bringing them out to the dog park or if you are trying to introduce them to other people it may be bringing them to a festival or some place where there is a lot of people that are not necessarily going to pay attention to them or walking by so they can get used to that feeling. >> as puppies day one. >> exactly. >> what about if you adopt a dog and it is 10 years old, same deal this? >> yeahings really is try -- yeah, really is trying to get as much exposure as possible and taking baby steps it will not hanover night if you try and do too much all at once it will be a traumatic experience for them even if you are in an
